Author James Wolcott

As part of WSHU's 'Join the Conversation' lecture series, James Wolcott, author, blogger, and culture critic for Vanity Fair magazine, will read from his new memoir, Lucking Out: My Life Getting Down and Semi-Dirty in Seventies New York, which captures all the gritty, grubby glamour of the Big Apple in the awful and wonderful Seventies. This From the birth of punk rock to haute-lit high life, he captures New York when civilization was ending, when the rents were affordable, and when geniuses walked the streets. Lucking Out is a classic story of a young literary man who arrives from he provinces to the big city determined to make good.
